  1. Hey all, Recently started up a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKRhs69P1wojb-JKVz7jLPg) which features weekly videos with my opinion on the ships I'm playing and some commentary (both the good and bad) of my gameplay. I'll add a post with each new video, so please scroll to the end for the latest iteration. This week's video features a game in the Tier V Hawkins. So come on over to watch me make some boneheaded plays and talk out of my aft porthole! Thanks and happy sailing! Caffeinicus
  2. As you may already be familiar, I typically host a weekly #screenshotsaturday contest on our social media pages. In turn, I’ve seen a lot of amazing screenshots that have come in from our players, but also a number of questions about how to capture these types of screenshots. Therefore, I thought it would be a great opportunity to review how to watch your game replays, take screenshots, and use hotkeys for free cams so that you all can get the perfect game capture! Because who knows when you may need to use that epic torpedo soup drop for bragging rights How to access replays and screenshots? Replays are automatically saved in your game folder on your computer. You will first have to find the folder on your computer where you’ve saved the game. Once you’ve found this folder you should be able to open it up and find another file labeled “Replays” which automatically saves the last 15 gameplays you’ve played. The will be in the folder labeled with the ship you played and timestamp. (The exception being when a new patch is released. Your replays prior to the patch will no longer be accessible.) Now that you’ve found the folder, to open a replay you must first make sure that you don’t have the game currently running. Then, right-click the replay that you would like to view and select Open. For the first time you do this, your computer may ask you what program to open the file with. You will need to select the World of Warships game client. Once you have told your computer how to open these files, they should automatically open the game every time you open these files. You probably also noticed that in the same game folder where your replays are located, there is another folder labeled “Screenshot”. At any point in the game, you can press Prt Sc to save a screenshot from the game to this folder When doing this in a battle, it won’t make any noise, there will not be any distinct notification, but it will automatically save here in the folder. Note: This feature, unfortunately, does not work when watching replays. This is only for regular game client mode. For capturing screenshots in replays, you will still have to use the good ole’ fashioned Prt Scr button and paste it into Paint (or Photoshop if you’re fancy ) How to control the Cameras during replays? Once you’re watching your replays there are several hotkeys that you can use which I’ve listed below. It should be noted, that majority of these options are specifically for Free cam mode, so if you are wanting to watch the battle from a tournament-style view, you’re going to want to just start off in the free cam mode -> Ctrl + Shift + Backspace General Hide / show interface Ctrl + J Playback Toggles Pause and resume playback End Set x1 playback speed (does not resumes playback from pause) Home Increase playback speed Insert Decrease playback speed Delete Fast forward > Fast backward < Fast forward х2 Ctrl +> Fast backward х2 Ctrl + < Camera control Link / Unlink camera C Free camera mode Ctrl + Shift + Backspace Move camera in parallel to water ←, →, ↑, ↓ Move camera up Num9 Move camera down Num7 Zoom in / Zoom out Mouse wheel Link to the ship in front of camera in free camera mode (hard link, includes rotating with the ship) B Link to the position of the ship in front of the camera Ctrl + B Switching different free camera modes 1-9 Switching additional free camera modes Shift + 1-9 Rotating camera Num4, Num6 Camera angling Num2, Num8 Move camera to the point of interest Num1 Move camera away from the point of interest Num3 Increase/decrease camera movement speed Num + / Num- Increase / decrease camera movement acceleration / deceleration Shift + (Num + / Num-) Increase/decrease the radius of the free camera sphere (the sphere around the real camera position. The real position becomes a point of interest) Shift + Mouse wheel Snapshots control Save a snapshot F5 Load the closest snapshot before the current moment F6 Load the closest snapshot after the current moment F7 Load the latest saved snapshot F8 Being able to freely move the camera while watching replays also provides a totally new experience for appreciating some of the game landscapes and graphics that typically get overlooked by the average person. I’ve also found it particularly helpful in my personal quest to “get gud” to watch replays specifically to watch how other members on my team handled being in certain situations. I hope you all find this helpful. I invite you to use this thread to share any cool and interesting screenshots you were able to take with this method. Also please let us know if you have any additional tips that I may have missed in this guide. See you on the high seas, Captains!

    A Promise is a promise (Kami REPLAYx2)

    As promised to the guys in tonight's Kami match... The replay of the match is going to be available for them to enjoy at their leisure, on the Forums... (PLUS A BONUS)A Draw Match up. I would like to thank all who's participation enhanced the enjoyment of the matches displayed... I've enjoyed the battle immensely. TY guys... The replays 20210505_222907_PJSD025-True-Kamikaze_41_Conquest.wowsreplay 20210505_225853_PJSD025-True-Kamikaze_41_Conquest.wowsreplay The draw... Enjoy guys!
  4. Adding a visual to @vikingno2 thread here... Here I present a double CV match (REPLAY) in where I am playing DD... Everything was great, exciting, and everyone is having fun like before the current (0.8.0 patch) CV... At the beginning of the 8 min mark (Yes I am giving you timestamps but not much details)... The match just changes to the WOWS version of WOWP... From that case on... We were treated to the exact reason CVs are just adding to the relationship strain with the other surface ship... The replay... 20210504_221327_PJSD025-True-Kamikaze_41_Conquest.wowsreplay If I were to put my narrative on the situation... From the 8th min on down, it was worse then seeing two BBs looking like old grandpas throwing stones at each other's yard... This descriptor, best describes the narrative I live ATM compared to the start of the match, up to the 8 min mark. It complete halted every feel good emotion everyone felt... Oh I forgot the cherry on top... CV driver "entitlement." expressed by near the end of the game in chat... After I reviewed the replay, I have to disagree with you final analysis... Enjoy WG's creation boys... The concept is getting expanded to other surface ships... I still ask myself the basic human question allowed in the forums in my behalf.... WHY? Full Disclosure; I am not against the inclusion of CVs... I do believe they belong in the game in some way shape or form.. I disagree with the current manifestation, monstrosity creation of the CV class in the game currently... It is causing a rift in the relationship with other vessels in a given match.
  5. Hey hey people, idiot here. I'm currently banging my head against the wall due to a issue with my mods disabling my replay. It stops new replay files from being generated and inturn stops mm monitor from working aswell due to its need to use the replay file to function. Heres some stuff I tried to do to fix it: -uninstall all mods (including the aslain program which I used for mods). Didn't work -turning replay on manually in the files, also Didn't work -Using safe mode, somehow works even though it didn't work when all the mods are deleted -re-installing the game, worked but as soon as I tried to put in a few mods it just breaks again I know I seem dumb to force mods into the game even though I could just play vanilla but after hours and hours of trying its more of a commitment issue now and I just want to get to the bottom of this buggy mess. Plus the same mods has been working for month now which only started breaking down after the new update. If anyone is dedicated enough please help, by this rate I'll be actually good at this game before this gets fixed.
  6. Hello So I came across a bug when watching replays. I don't know what triggers it but whenever I watch a replay of mine the cursor is enabled by default, I can't get it off (CTRL doesn't do anything) and I can't click on anything, pressing ESC to bring up the menu doesn't do anything. The replays runs just fine but nothing else happens, I can't hide the UI, I can't look in free camera, I can't pause or speed up/down the game, nothing at all. It was working just fine a couple of weeks ago, no problems at all. I'm using replays because I need to take some screenshots for a guide I'm preparing, so it's quite important now. Yes, I know that if you click on "Join Battle" when looking at the pre-match team comp can glitch the UI, but I just leave it to enter automatically. And no, I'm not running any mods. Help?! Cheers!
  7. This post appeared in a corner of the EU forum and nowhere else, apparently. https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/138161-replay-controls-and-features/ In the 0.9.6 Update we've fixed an error, which prevented playing the replay backwards. This allowed us to add snapshots - timestamps which may be returned to from any place in the replay. More details below. General Hide/show interface Ctrl + J Playback Pause/Resume End Play at x1 speed (Does not automatically resume when paused) Home Increase playback speed Insert Decrease playback speed Delete Fast forward > Fast backward < Fast forward х2 Ctrl + > Fast backward х2 Ctrl + < Camera control Link/Unlink camera C Free camera mode (it may still be needed to unlink camera by pressing LMB) Ctrl + Shift + Backspace Move camera in parallel to water ←, →, ↑, ↓ Move camera up Num9 Move camera down Num7 Zoom in/Zoom out Mouse wheel Link to the ship in front of camera in free camera mode (hard link, includes rotating with the ship) B Link to the position of the ship in front of the camera Ctrl + B Switching different free camera modes 1-9 Switching additional free camera modes Shift + 1-9 Rotating camera Num4, Num6 Camera angling Num2, Num8 Move camera to the point of interest Num1 Move camera away from the point of interest Num3 Increase/decrease camera movement speed Num+ / Num- Increase/decrease camera movement acceleration/deceleartion Shift + (Num+/ Num-) Increase/decrease the radius of the free camera sphere (the sphere aroun the real camera position. The real position becomes a point of interest) Shift + Mouse wheel Snapshots control Save a snapshot F5 Load the closest snapshot before the current moment F6 Load the closest snapshot after the current moment F7 Load the latest saved snapshot F8 Snapshots This function allows to save a timestamp and camera position and restore them at will. All snapshots data is stored in XML file, which is created in the same folder as a replay and has suffix _params in the <snapshots> block. XML file will appear only if there is any data it should store. In case with snapshots it will appear after the first snapshot is created. XML file is tied to the replay and may be freely transfered with the replay file to other people, who then can use snapshots. Creating and loading Snapshot is created by pressing F5. This saves the timestamp of the replay, camera position and other parameters and creates a record in file in the snapshots section. Switching between snapshots happens in the following way: F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the left on the time scale (earlier than now), if such snapshot exists. F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the right on the time scale (later than now), if such snapshot exists. F8: try to switch to the most recently created snapshot To delete snapshots you have to edit XML file and delete the snapshot records. Snapshots are existing and loaded on the replay-by-replay basis. So, the controls switch to the snapshots of the exact replay. Loaded parameters When snapshots are used, the following parameters are restored: Camera position Camera FOV (or camera zoom) Replay time Also the replay is paused after loading the snapshot.
  8. I have been unable to watch a replay since the last update. The replay loads and play except my screen never changes. It stays on the team and map screen. I can hear the battle, guns fired, torps launched, etc, but none of the action displays. I have checked my installation, moved the replay to the bin directory, tried different replays, etc. Nothing works. I am running ModStation mods. Does anyone have a workaround or a way to fix this problem? Thanks!
  9. I am not going to suggest a solution (that is up for the DEVs), I am going to complain about the zombie planes attacking ships, after the said ship out smarted/sunk the CV driver... Not only CVs are so disproportionate in DMG dealing (against small/medium ships), even when they're sunk by smart plays.. They still find a way with zombie planes to retaliate against the person who sunk them (by hovering over them for what seems like forever, or dropping a consumable to pinpoint the location of the said ship)... IMO, IF a CV is sunk by any ship class.. He shouldn't be able to retaliate against said player... Its over at that point... Replay instructions... Fast forward to the red CV's sinking. Press play and enjoy 20201018_225113_PJSD025-True-Kamikaze_41_Conquest.wowsreplay

    Simple Replay Tutorial

    A while back, replays were enabled by default. Your most recents games are saved as replays which can be found in the "replay" folder located inside the main WoWs folder (the one that contains the .exe). Replays are pretty small, and older ones are deleted, so don't worry about your harddrive filling up with old replays. To watch a replay, double click on it like you would an application. If Windows can't find an application through which to run the replay, manually select the WoWs .exe in the drop down menu. WoWs can NOT be open. You can NOT watch a replay, and simultaneously have WoWs open. Replays can be renamed (some users have reported that renaming can cause issues, others have no issue), moved around, shared. Once open, the replay will show you pretty much exactly what you saw when you originally played that game. It will replay your camera movements, zoom, bullet tracking, etc. This can be changed, as outlined below. Controls: Control-j: toggles the UI (enabled by default) Mouse 1: Allows you to look wherever you want (not tied to the crosshair) Control-Shift-Backspace: detaches the camera from the ship (only if mouse 1 is already clicked), allowing use of the following commands Arrow keys: control movement on a flat plane Number Pad 7: move down Number pad 9: move up Number pad 8: look up Number pad 5: look down Number pad 4: look left Number pad 6: look right Number pad 1: go in the direction the camera is facing Number pad 3: go in the reverse of where you're facing B: attach camera to ship movement (can be any ship) Shift-B: attach camera to ship movement, and turn (can be any ship) Press these buttons again to detach from the ship End: pause replay Home: resume at normal speed Delete: slow down replay, each press slows down progressively more Insert: speed up replay, same thing Theoretically, "," and "." can skip backward and forward, but they always crash my replays. Scroll wheel zooms in and out (without the binocular effect) ESC brings up the same menu as in battles, press Exit to close out the replay. Pressing ESC when in super slow mo causes the menu to take it's sweet time appearing. The replay needs to be unpaused for the ESC menu to appear. Sometimes you also need to enable the UI (control-J) You can go underwater, it is very cool. Anything that happens to the ship that is the subject of the replay will also happen to the camera even if it is detached. For example, if the ship catches on fire, the replay camera will acquire flame effects. Similarly, if the replay camera is 30km away from the ship, sounds will still be heard as if the ship is right there (reload sounds, gunshots, flooding etc...) in addition to the nearby sounds. If you know of any other replays controls, let me know please!
  11. The continuation from the topic thread here In today's feature, I am not the star of the replay... Its the red fleet's DD. You the viewer, as you watch, just keep an eye on our CV... That is it.. Also, like the last post.. This is not a discussion on spotting. This is not a rant against CVs or the drivers who play them. This is meant to show how power creep adds to the toxicity to the in-game experience.Its also meant for us to think, should this meta be allowed in the game? IMO, The disproportional DMG dealt by CVs ( or any other ship class for that matter), creates a lot of the toxicity in a match. Enjoy! 20200826_223115_PASC707-Flint_46_Estuary.wowsreplay *REMEMBER* You can speed up the replay by pressing the INS button.
  12. This match, I explore the psychology of CV game play and its affects on the fleet. You may have been in a match like this, in which it leaves thinking afterwards... Huah? or What ? At the forefront, I have no ill will against our CV in the game. I rather like to thank him, for this opportunity to analyze and discus this elusive topic captured visually. Instructions This is not about me or what I did in the game. Fast forward to 9 min left in the match You can use the "Ins" key to speed up the replay and the "home" button to return to normal speed. During the fast speed, you can look at the mini map seeing how the CV is playing.. Or just enjoy the view... Its up to you. For the 9 min mark on down, pay attention. to two things. Chat- the interaction with the CV AND the fleet. The Mini map.. It will give you valuable information to the battle situation as I seen it. That is it, *REMEMBER* the topic is about psychology, the mindset, or anything else of that nature... Here is the Replay...(re uploaded) 20200915_224912_PRSC508-Kutuzov-1952_50_Gold_harbor.wowsreplay BTW, For those who want to know before hand the outcome of the match. I'll leave in the spoiler. Also, No stats were used. No statistics were used.. Its plane ol study of the human mind... Enjoy.

    Talk about a loss

    Well, against my better judgment, I present a replay for your review. I probably did everything wrong, beeched and moaned and whatever. I have not even looked at the replay so it's all fair game. It does go right down to the very last seconds so take notes, tell me everything wrong I and our team did wrong(?) but the ending was enjoyable. It's like you know what's coming but because of your previous choices you deserve it and you know it. 20200906_092953_PGSA110-Manfred-Richthofen_19_OC_prey.wowsreplay

    WoW Uploader Failed

    So I tried to upload my latest replay. It starts to load, the bar goes across, the little cog turns....and then nothing. It just shows me the same upload screen that I'd just been in.
  15. This youtube video tutorial will guide you through the process of storing the replays in the world of warships installation folder. This video also guides you through the different settings that you would find beneficial while watching your/others' replays. Watch the video completely to remove any & all doubts. If you still have doubts after watching, post in the comment section below(in youtube) & i will be in touch with you promptly. Thank you in advance. See you on the high-seas.
  16. Who said Russian gunboat DDs can't use their torpedoes effectively? Yes, I'm not running comcealment; a full 9.1km detection range. Just wanted to share because this was a silly match but it was also a great one. 1 - rushed a full HP DM. 2 - sank a Harugumo with preemptive torps 3 - rushed a crippled Yamato, all guns pointed at me. Also had an NC's secondaries trained on me. https://replayswows.com/replay/85051#stats
  17. Hi, I have no problem opening my own replays, but an error will appear when I download others' replays and I have no choice but to terminate it. Does anyone know why and how to fix it? Thank you.
  18. Here I will post replays of my better matches. Feel free to comment and critique. Before we begin though, I would like everyone to know that they area able to record full-quality replays, regardless of how weak their PC is. Using old WOT-based videos as an example: Proof of concept: Tutorial:
  19. Guys I encountered a really weird death today. In a Nagato, I was 1v1ing an Algerie,.I saw her wall of torps go past me, and I blew her up with my main battery. Immediately after, I dodged some torps from TB's in a 90 degree angle, taking one hit. I had sufficient HP to survive that hit, but suddenly my ship blew up, and it listed the Algerie as the killer, "killed by flooding" it said. It was confusing as I didnt ram her, and I never saw a second wave of Algerie's torps. I asked the chat, and an enemy BB responded with "detonation" and that it was shown in the chat. However I didn't see it in the chat, and I don't have a medal or a notification for it either. Those were torpedo bomber torps and I was supposed to survive them!! So, what do you think? Bug? Glitch? Hack? What is the problem? Here is the replay link https://replayswows.com/replay/37035#stats
  20. I had fired torps at a Tirpitz. No other ships were in my field of view. A Cossack comes from my right side, drives in front of my torps, takes the kill and eats one of my torps. Game ends. This is for those of you who think griefers and trolls can't cause a person to turn pink. I made a clear shot, and the Cossack simply chose to eat a friendly torp in exchange for an easy kill for him. As for me, got a two game 'penalty' so not a big deal. But to me this is a great example of how someone can be turned pink, even though they are being reasonable about their torp shots. 20180930_211607_PJSD108-Akizuki_35_NE_north_winter.wowsreplay
  21. Today I am going to showcase my experience in the Tier 8 Royal Navy Destroyer, the Lightning. Overall a decent ship, but my experience in it was "something different" compaired to other ships I have played.
  22. Today's Replay Breakdown is brought to you by the letter "C", for the huge Carry you are about to watch. Enjoy!
  23. So I have been grinding the new IJN Gunboat Destroyers and this is my second game in the Tier 9 Kitakaze. In this replay I showcase how to fight for the win and use my game knowledge to predict what the enemy is trying to do.
  24. What do you do when you make a huge mistake early in the game? You dont give up, you fight and do everything in your power to make an impact on the game. In this Indianapolis replay I show how to recover from a major mistake and how to use your ship's strengths to still contribute to your teams chances of winning.
  25. So I just finished a game in my Amagi (grinding IJN BBs) where a "friendly" Gaede appears to have had a script/macro to hit the F6 Requesting AA key exactly 1 time per second and therefore not triggering the automated flood protection which squelches if you hit it 3 times fast. He let this run almost the entire match until finally our Kagero had enough and TK'd him. He was being reported by EVERYONE on our team and maybe some of the reds as we had people begging them to report/kill him. Remember blacklisting does nothing for F key commands and I heard an unconfirmed rumor that you cannot be reported for misbehavior in chat if you never say anything but only use F keys. I have attached the replay for the masochists. What can be done about this? It seems to me the easiest solution is to mute function keys while people are blacklisted. I personally play with the game volume pretty low and watching something else on a second monitor so it didn't really effect me at all, I'm just sure other people have encountered similar trolling where there is nothing you can do except maybe mute the game entirely. 20180809_183026_PJSB013-Amagi-1942_50_Gold_harbor.wowsreplay
